I have a 2014 forest...
I have a 2014 forest river FR3 30DS
When I got it out of winter storage, im now unable to get the generator to power the roof A/C and interior outlets as it has been able to do in the past.
Everything works when plugged into 30amp, but nothing works when the generator is turned on. I've reset the GFCI outlet, checked all breakers and fuses but cannot find anything wrong.
The generator works fine with less than 70 hours on it. The 30amp cord is plugged back into the battery charger and the battery control connect toggle is on.
We're traveling across country now and have no power unless we stop at a campground to hook up to 30amp service...it's been dreadful and we cannot find anyone to look at it as everyone is booked out 2 weeks for repairs.
What might I be missing?
Please help!

First thing to do is check the breakers to make sure they are on at the generator, they are located on the contol box where the on/off switch is..........ck that first then we will move forward, thanks
